"A Beautiful Delusion The Coming Anti-Christ"
Authored by William Kinney
Hidden in the Hebrew scriptures is evidence that Adam and Eve were immortal and covered in light, just as God uses light as a covering for himself (Psalm 104:2). They were more than two unique individuals, their bodies represented a plane of existence that was an integral part of the fabric of Creation. The sin they committed changed their physiology, and they became mortal. Because of their mortality; "God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife, and clothed them." Gen 3:21
When God made these coverings of skin, did He slaughter animals, skin them, tan their hides, make thread, and then sew together some buckskin clothing? Or, does the term "coverings of skin" refer to the epidermal, or outer layers of human skin. Skin that was added because without their covering of light they could not exist as mortals in the natural world. Their offense was not only against God, it was against their own bodies, and they altered their DNA.
How else can we explain the fact that through heredity, we have shared in the penalty for their sins? The story of creation, the fall, redemption, and the coming anti-Christ; is all linked to the body and specifically - DNA.
In 2000, I read an interview "Reader's Digest magazine" did with Dr. Francis Crick. (He and Dr. Watson are credited with discovering the double helix structure of DNA). At the time, the Human Genome project was underway. Dr. Crick was asked about how many genes they had identified so far. He answered, 140,000, and we expect to find 4,000 more. I almost fell out of my chair.
How could anyone miss the significance of that number?
This immediately changed my perception of certain scripture. In Revelation, 144,000 are sealed with the seal of God, (in their foreheads). 144,000 stand on Mount Zion with Christ, having the name of God written in their foreheads.
What if this number, instead of referring to a number of individuals, actually refers to the immortal life genome?
In other words, to be "sealed" by God is to have your genetic code supernaturally sequenced back to an immortal state. Since the human body, (and its homeostasis), is a closed system, Adam and Eve did not destroy the genes that enable immortal life, they reorganized the sequence. This proprietary information was not annihilated, it was merely suppressed.
"Life Extension Magazine" interviewed Dr. Michael D. West about a breakthrough published in the journal "Regenerative Medicine." He said (regarding immortality):
"The goal of gerontology, for many years, has been to find the reason that our reproductive lineage continues to make babies, generation after generation, while the other cells in our body, [called somatic cells], have a finite life span, and are mortal,...The answer is that we come from a lineage of cells that have been proliferating since the dawn of life on earth. The cells that made us have no dead ancestors."
We come from immortality, and much of the genetic research performed today is focused on immortality..." [end of excerpt].
I STRONGLY recommend this Book. It will bring to life the significant description of the "Nacash", [translated "serpent"] as being: "...the most subtle beast in the field". [SUBTLE: "hard to be discerned"]...Bill helps us better appreciate the subtle nature of the "beast" by his numbers we expect to encounter in relation to his coming as the Anti-Christ...666, & 144,000.
I was once warned by a very Godly gentleman: "The closer we get to the end, the more we'll realize we've not understood the Scriptures correctly".
Bill Kinney does a inspiring job revealing why that's true! Using Scripture, and modern Science, recent developments in Scientific research, and daily events. Enjoy!
Polls continue to shower good news on real-estate mogul Donald Trump's presidential campaign.
A Tuesday StPetePolls.org survey even found Trump leading two of his GOP rivals — in their home state of Florida.
The poll found Trump with 26% of the vote among Republican primary voters in the state, compared to 20% for former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) and roughly 10% for Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Florida). Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R), with 12%, also led Rubio.
Both SaintPetersBlog and the Drudge Report labeled it a "SHOCK POLL."
Trump reportedly reacted to the poll by telling Breitbart News, "I have always loved Florida, what a great honor."
The Florida-based pollster's track record has been criticized — and, of course, it is still very early in the race — but the poll is only the latest in a long line of recent surveys that have shown Trump ahead of the GOP pack.
A Monmouth University poll, also out Tuesday, found that the Republican businessman had opened up a two-to-one lead over Bush — his nearest primary rival — in New Hampshire.
A NBC News/Marist poll released Sunday gave Trump 21% of the GOP vote compared to 14% for Bush in the Granite State. And another Sunday poll, a national survey from CNN, also found Trump in the No. 1 position in the primary.
The good news comes despite a string of recent controversies that have placed negative media light on Trump's high-profile campaign. Among other things, Trump briefly dismissed Sen. John McCain's (R-Arizona) "war hero" status before backtracking and saying the opposite. McCain was captured, tortured, and held as a prisoner of war for five years during the Vietnam War.
"The controversy over comments about John McCain's war service do not appear to have slowed the Trump steamroller," said Patrick Murray, director of the Monmouth University poll.
NASA’s recent announcement that it has discovered an “Earth-like” planet orbiting a nearby start is “bad news for God,” according to a recent article in The Huffington Post.
Jeff Schweitzer, a scientist, author, and former policy analyst for the Clinton White House, claims that the discovery of Kepler-452b is a watershed because it indicates that Earth-like planets are common, and by extension that extraterrestrial life may be common as well. And that, he says, means that religion is a dead letter.
“I would like here to preempt what will certainly be a re-write of history on the part of the world’s major religions,” he says authoritatively. “I predict with great confidence that all will come out and say such a discovery is completely consistent with religious teachings. My goal here is to declare this as nonsense before it happens.”
Despite pledging to stop religion in general from “contort[ing]” itself to accommodate alien life, Schweitzer actually ignores all other religions, from Hinduism to Zoroastrianism, in order to exclusively bash Christianity. The Bible, he says, is totally unambiguous that extraterrestrial life does not exist, and so the discovery of other life means that God is of course one big fraud.
Schweitzer’s means of proving his argument isn’t terribly complicated, and revolves around using a totally literal interpretation of the Bible.
From Genesis 1:1, we get:
“God said, ‘Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, over all the creatures that move along the ground.’ So God created man in his own image, in the image of god he created him; male and female he created them.” [Note: This verse is actually Genesis 1:26, not 1:1]
Nothing in that mentions alien worlds, which of course the ancients knew nothing about. Man was told to rule over the fish on the earth, not on other planets. But god would have known of these alien worlds, so it is curious he did not instruct the authors to include the language.
The Bible, according to Schweitzer, would obviously have to mention in an aside that animals exist on other planets if it were really an authentic divinely-inspired text. Why exactly this is the case isn’t clear. The Bible doesn’t categorically rule out the existence of other planets, and even the wording of the passage Schweitzer quotes could be easily interpreted as apply to non-Earth planets without literally naming them.
Schweitzer has a follow-up ready to go, though:
There is also a problem with Genesis 1:3: And God said, “Let there be light” and there was light. Well, the earth is only 4.5 billion years old, yet the universe, and all the light generating stars in ancient galaxies, are more than 13 billion years old. So when god said, “Let there be light” there already had been light shining bright for at least 10 billion years. He was flipping a switch that had been turned on eons before by the thermonuclear reactions in billions of stars that predate earth. That light bathed other suns and other planets long before the earth was a loose accumulation of rocks orbiting our sun. Since this is the story of all creation, these tidbits seem an important omission that will undermine the entire story when we find life elsewhere. We were late to the game of “let there be light.”
Earth and Kepler 186FHere, Schweitzer appears to be making the assumption that the “light” is Earth’s sun, while all other stars are categorically excluded. But even if one accepts Schweitzer’s totally literal reading of the Bible, he is blundering spectacularly in a way he could have avoided by simply reading another few paragraphs. The “light” of Genesis 1:3 is all light, and is explicitly not that of the sun, because, according to the Bible, God creates the sun and stars on the fourth day:
And God said, “Let there be lights in the vault of the sky to separate the day from the night, and let them serve as signs to mark sacred times, and days and years, and let them be lights in the vault of the sky to give light on the earth.” And it was so. God made two great lights—the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars. God set them in the vault of the sky to give light on the earth, to govern the day and the night, and to separate light from darkness.
But most believers won’t have to nitpick Schweitzer’s reading of Genesis, because there is a simpler objection to be made: He is relying on an absolute fundamentalist view of the Bible, which holds that it must be 100 percent factual or else utterly false. While some Christians do hold to this view, many don’t. Early Christians actually argued extensively over whether to take Genesis literally, and that argument has continued throughout history. In Catholicism, no less an authority than the Pope has said that followers are free to interpret Genesis literally or not based on their own beliefs, with the church actually taking no official position. The approach to alien life is similar, with Catholicism taking no position at all. Similarly non-dogmatic approaches exist in Orthodoxy and many Protestant denominations.
Schweitzer has a ready-made response, though:
Now some say that these are not real days, but allegorical “god days” which could be millions of years each. But no, when god said let there be light and created life in six days, he tied these events to seasons on earth, which are governed by real days. So the Bible tells us that all life, in all the heavens, was all put on earth in six days, that is six earth days. Let us be perfectly clear that this leaves no room for alien life in this creation story. The discovery of alien life would therefore undermine the entire saga.
In other words, the creation story can’t be allegorical, because it doesn’t explicitly say it’s an allegory. Checkmate, theists! And even if it is an allegory, Schweitzer says that’s no escape.:
None of the 66 books of the bible make any reference to life other than that created by god here on earth in that six-day period. If we discover life elsewhere, one must admit that is an oversight. So much so in fact that such a discovery must to all but the most closed minds call into question the entire story of creation, and anything that follows from that story. How could a convincing story of life’s creation leave out life? Even if the story is meant to be allegorical, the omission of life elsewhere makes no sense.
Of course, there are actually many things the Bible never mentions, such as computers, Baroque architecture, and Japan. Despite decisively asserting that a true god would simply have to specifically mention life on other planets, Schweitzer does not say why this is the case, or how a general account of God creating all life categorically excludes other planets simply because it doesn’t mention them.
Throughout the article, Schweitzer gives several indications that he doesn’t understand Christianity in much detail, or at least is unwilling to account for nuance in the faith. For instance, he plays fast and loose with Christian denominations. He cites Urban VIII’s condemnation of Galileo as proof of “the church’s” views on heliocentrism, ignoring that a Catholic pope could hardly speak for Protestant or Orthodox Christians (or even Catholics who disagreed with him, like Galileo himself). He speaks of the “66 books of the bible,” ignoring that the 66-book Bible is exclusive to Protestantism, with other denominations having more.
Some Huffington Post commentators attempted to correct Schweitzer, and made little headway. One commentator, for instance, pointed out that Catholicism never condemned Darwinian evolution even when the theory was new, earning a derisive “Please, please tell me you are kidding” from Schweitzer, who offered no rebuttal.

Yet another hit on Hillary. I really think the 'progressives' in the Dem party are trying to stop her campaign...
Linda Tripp, the tape-recording former pal of Monica Lewinsky who exposed the intern’s affair with President Bill Clinton, broke nearly two decades of silence Tuesday and unloaded on Hillary Clinton.
The 65-year-old Tripp tore into both Clintons, but saved her harshest rhetoric for the former first lady, calling her a power-hungry monster who would do anything to get elected.
“I think the most compelling thing about Hillary is that she will stop at nothing to achieve her end and that she views the public as plebeians easily seduced into believing her point of view,” Tripp told the Daily Mail.
Tripp said Hillary was a key leader in White House efforts to squash “bimbo eruptions,” when the West Wing unleashed quick-fire responses to discredit women claiming to have had affairs with Bubba.
“In this endeavor she was ruthless. She destroyed women so that their stories never saw the light of day,” Tripp said.
The ultimate goal, from Day 1 of Bubba’s administration, was to ensure Hillary would rule 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. someday just like Bill, according to Tripp.
“This has been planned for so many years. I remember one of the quotes in my first week in the Oval Office which was the week after Clinton’s first inauguration,” the former civil servant said.
“Everybody had this little mantra, ‘Eight years for Bill. Eight years for Hill.’ And when I asked a senior person, ‘What does that mean?’ He said, ‘Well eight years for his administration and eight years for hers. So this is a runaway train. Nobody is going to stop it,’ ” Tripp said.
The former Defense Department employee nearly brought down Clinton’s White House by secretly recording her phone calls with her one-time friend Lewinsky.
The intern-turned-paramour poured her heart out to Tripp in the secret tapes, revealing her love for — and sexual encounters with — Clinton.
After Tripp exposed the Lewinsky-Clinton connection, the presidential mistress famously told special prosecutor Kenneth Starr: “I hate Linda Tripp.”
As for betraying her pal Lewinsky, Tripp said she’d do it again.
“I regret what I put my children through. I regret very much that they had to endure that level of vitriol,” Tripp said.“But would I do it again? Yes.”
Tripp and her husband now live in rural Virginia and operate a Christmas store, The Christmas Sleigh.

"Tertullian says, in his Apology addressed to the Rulers of
the Roman Empire:
. . Let a person be brought before your tribunals who is
plainly under demoniacal possession. The wicked spirit,
bidden to speak by a follower of Christ, will as readily make
the truthful confession that he is a demon, as elsewhere he
has falsely asserted that he is a god. Or, if you will, let there
be produced one of the god-possessed, as they are supposed--
if they do not confess, IN THEIR FEAR OF LYING TO A
CHRISTIAN, that they are demons, then and there shed the
blood of that most impudent follower of Christ.
"ALL THE AUTHORITY AND POWER WE HAVE OVER THEM IS
FROM OUR NAMING THE NAME OF CHIRST, AND RECALLING
TO THEIR MEMORY THE WOES WITH WHICH GOD
THREATENS THEM AT THE HAND OF CHIRST THEIR JUDGE,
AND WHICH THEY EXPECT ONE DAY TO OVERTAKE THEM.
FEARING CHRIST IN GOD AND GOD IN CHRIST, THEY
BECOME SUBJECT TO THE SERVANTS OF GOD AND CHRIST.
SO AT ONE TOUCH AND BREATHING, OVERWHELMED BY
THE THOUGHT AND REALIZATION OF THOSE JUDGEMENT
FIRES, THEY LEAVE AT OUR COMMAND THE BODIES THEY
HAVE ENTERED, UNWILLING AND DISTRESSED, AND
BEFORE YOUR VERY EYES, PUT TO AN OPEN SHAME . . ."
Justin Martyr, in his second Apology addressed to the Roman
Senate, says: "Numberless demoniacs throughout the whole
world and in your city, many of our Christian men--exorcising
them in the name of Jesus Christ who was crucified under
Pontius Pilate--have healed and do heal, rendering helpless,
and driving the possessing demon out of the men, though
they could not be cured by all other exorcists, and those
who use incantations and drugs."
CYPRIAN expressed himself with equal confidence. After
having said that they are evil spirits that inspire the false
prophets of the Gentiles, and deliver oracles by always
mixing truth with falsehood to prove what they say, he adds:
"Nevertheless these evil spirits adjured by the living God
IMMEDIATELY OBEY US, SUBMIT TO US, OWN OUR POWER,
and are forced to come out of the bodies they possess. . . ."

The Security Subcommittee of The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform Committee held a hearing on July 28, 2015, on The Impact of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions Movement.
According to the House Advisory, the purpose was
• To better understand the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) Movement, and review the economic impact of the Movement on American and Israeli businesses.
•To review how the goals of BDS may or may not be affected by International Trade Law, U.S. federal law, and state law.
•To seek to establish the formal position of the Administration with regard to BDS.
•To review potential actions by the Department of State to maintain free and open trade among the U.S., Europe, and Israel.
The Tower has a write up on the full scope of the hearing. In a later post we will focus on the testimony of Northwestern Univ. Law Professor Eugene Kontorovich, whose lecture on The Legal Case for Israel is a must watch.
Today we focus on the testimony of Daniel Birnbaum, CEO of SodaStream International.
We previously have featured the success story of SodaStream in hiring Palestinians and bringing Israeli Jews, Arabs and Palestinians together:
Because it represents peace and coexistence, SodaStream has been a prime target of BDS, including failed attempts to get SodaStream commercials banned at the SuperBowl:
SodaStream 2014 Superbowl Commercial
There were attempts to force SodaStream to close its West Bank factory.
When it decided to move the production to an Israeli factory for business reasons unrelated to BDS, the BDS movement nonetheless continued to boycott SodaStream — proof positive that the complaints about a factory in the West Bank were just pretext.
In France the lies spread by BDS about SodaStream were so extreme that SodaStream won in French court case against a boycott group.
In his congressional testimony, Birnbaum revealed the full depth and breadth of the attacks on SodaStream — threats, sabotage, and disruption around the world.
Birnbaum’s written testimony is embedded below, and contains extensive documentation of the BDS war against SodaStream.
Here is an excerpt as to BDS tactics:
Following our experience of 8 years, we learned that BDS is focused on de-legitimizing the State of Israel as a whole, not just the West Bank, and in order to achieve this, BDS is willing to sacrifice the Palestinians themselves. Let me repeat that, because this is the most important aspect there is to know about the BDS. It is an anti-Semitic Israel-hating organization that is using the Palestinians as a proxy to achieve its vicious goal and bring an end to the Jewish State.
Here is his verbal testimony, including Questions and Answers:
